The Hockey Source has developed and published a website that is full of
useful and free information for anyone interested in coaching hockey at any age
level or skill level. We have gathered up the most valuable information that
everyone needs to know about the game itself and the rules it is played by. Our
coaching youth hockey series is a great place to start.
When you visit our site you can learn more about any of the following:
- The true purpose of teaching.
- Ethics for yourself and for your players and their parents.
- Skill base for yourself and for your players.
- The importance of effective communication skills.
- Game skills: How to play the sport and how to excel in it.
Plus much more!
In addition to teaching the game itself, you will also be required to utilize
your administration skills. For many this can be the hardest part of the whole
process. Few people like paperwork and our coaching youth hockey series can help
you learn the best way to get through that chore. You can learn how to best plan
and organize your events and practice sessions, as well as how to best execute
them once they are on paper. While it is not the most exciting job in the world,
it is a necessary job and the better it is done, the better the players and parents
You can also learn about the importance of statistics as they apply to the
overall game to the each player. We have an excellent resource available that
details the most common stats that players and managers want to see. This resource
has been broken down for you into easy to read and easy to understand language
and, again, this is free. No charge whatsoever.
The amount of information we have is vast, but it is all easier found from
the main page at our website, which is at www.thehockeysource.tv.
Feel free to take as much time as you need. We hope our site proves valuable
to you, and if it is please drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.
